Ok, It’s been 6 days since I asked and got a kinda vague response…so I’ll try again.

Have ANY lights from the GB shipped yet? When can I expect mine to ship?

The update above really doesn’t address the question(s) and the smell of smoke from the recent Haikelight forest fires doesnt make patience as unconditional as it used to be.

So I guess they’re on the move Wink

Yep, mine is in Holland and now Royal Mail recognise the tracking number. The odds are good that it will turn up this week Smile Now I just have to hope the wife isn’t around when it does….

Am I the only one without a tracking number yet? (though I did receive info from Jason that there is a problem with stocks of the bare emitter board, since I ordered that separately too).

You are not the only one. A couple of orders are waiting for the emitter boards to be finished.

The current estimate is that all remaining orders will be shipped tomorrow (Wednesday).

Same here, I still didn’t receive any Wuben email with tracking number. I hope for tomorrow, then.

I hoped for seeing one sample before taking further ones, but with this hard deadline, I cannot do that in the ‘default’ way.

EDIT: I’ve got the message from Jason with the tracking nr. today in the morning (13th June).

Aw man, mine is just being shipped out of the Netherlands. If it’s anything like when I ordered from Mountain Electronics then it’s going to be in customs for two weeks after it gets to Austria…

Just got my shipping notification today. Hooray!! Thanks Wuben and the .

Will post back when they arrive.

I’ve got a thrower, a flooder, and an EDC too. Still looking for a bigger thrower, flooder, and a new EDC, give or take a few. I’m a flashaholic.

Now, as this GB is happily over (and I’m soon a proud owner of 53 lights and 37 extra emitter boards), I’d like to ask you a favor.. Silly

Wuben has some overstock of Titanium keychain* lights. [* they market them as necklace lights, but most people know them as keychain lights – just add a claw]

Two models, G338, G337 :

Roughly 500pcs of nice USB-rechargeable keychain lights – CW XP-G2, 2 modes, weight under 15g with 10180 Li-ion battery – waiting in local warehouses (US, EU, Japan). Do you think we could help them get rid of all of those?

I got a tracking number from Jason on June 2nd and the light arrived today, so 12 days in transit, not bad. Not bad at all.

Love the light, looks great, great output, great UI and it feels and looks the business.

The HI-CRI XPG’s tend to have a little green in the corona, but the (very wide) spot is perfect with excellent color rendering.
The cell that came with the light is a 2600mAh with PCB, I would guess it’s a Samsung cell but not sure, would at least have to
test the capacity. The internal resistance is fairly high though.

Cheers,
Nico

I just noticed that Banggood have these T046R and T010R on sales for a little bit cheaper than our groupbuy price. I’m curious if there’s any difference?

Banggood sell only cool white. Our GB applies to neutral white.

Forever beginner.

I think more exact: tested and verified high-CRI (CRI=90+) neutral-white. The ones in other places (I would presume even the ones in official Wuben Store in AliExpress) may likely not have these verified high-CRI versions. Although they could mix them in (so it’ll be a lottery if you get one there).

It’s a kind of lottery where you can only lose. Wink

At the moment there are no other High CRI Wubens than the ones produced for this GB. This will of course change in the future.

My T046R arrived today. Great shipping packaging, I will definitely change optics, runs hot. Going to get it charged and ready to go for some playing around tonight.

Can anyone confirm if the bezel is glued? I cannot budge mine.
